In General front and backfalls Entry Tools Rate This Entry

My ankle feels the same as it did on Monday at beginner's class. We did ikkyo to gokyo and then 5 throws. I had no problems with ukemi for the pins but had problems again with backfalling properly on my right ankle. It's still slightly inflammed and cannot take the impact yet. I also discovered that in a forward fall I have to roll in such a way I don't come up on the right ankle too hard. The first time I went into the roll I did it as per normal then realised oops, I shouldn't have. Fortunately the forward rolls I can adjust to avoid too much strain on the ankle.

I partnered a 16 year old brown belt. She turned out to be the daughter of the shodan guy practicing behind me whom I've always thought was very good...just as well I was being careful and gentle with her . I think my sankyo and yonkyu still are bad though so she probably learned the wrong things from me!

I guess I'll stick to beginner's classes for now until I can take backfalls on the right without any pain or fear of injury. The good thing is this morning then ankle feels fine and better than before so I figure the streching and use during practise helped rather than hindered. Still hate sitting in seiza though especially at the start of class when the ligaments and muscles haven't warmed up sufficiently and I'm leaning to one side more than usual to take the weight off the ankle.
